Athletes are often told to stay away from simple sugars—like the kind found in white bread—unless they need an immediate energy boost. But after years of exile, the stuff may have a place in the world of sports nutrition after all. Allen Tran, registered dietitian and chef for the Olympic ski team, says that a piece of plain white toast will provide quick energy just as well as any shot block or gel.
Despite the never-ending articles posted about fad diets, there is no magic bullet when it comes to losing weight. It may not be as glamourous or enticing as a juice cleanse or week-long fast, but in 2018, consistently eating well-balanced meals is what’s recommended for weight loss and maintaining your health. Earlier this month, U.S. News & World Report released their Best Diet Overall List for 2018. Diets that took the top spots?
Have you gotten your flu shot yet? Early reports show that we could be in for a rough flu season this winter. The season began in October, and we’ve entered the peak time of year – December through February – for the virus to spread. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates there have been between 9.2 and 35.6 million cases of influenza each year in the U.S. since 2010, and 140,000 to 710,000 people have been hospitalized annually during that time.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
